Obsessive-compulsive use is only part of the addiction cycle. As this destructive pattern progresses, it inevitably affects a person on every level. In addition to our comprehensive in-house recovery programs, we offer clients the opportunity to participate in our enhanced recovery services, which feature a variety of alternative holistic treatments that can complement client's recovery experience.
The word holistic is derived from the Greek word holos, which means "whole." The recovery process involves rebuilding the "whole self" and learning how to live a balanced life. Some of the possible results of these services include long-term health benefits and a sense of well-being.
Our specially designed programs help clients navigate through many of life's challenges, guiding each of them on a journey of discovery and recovery. All of the program options we offer lead to the same destination: learning to live and enjoy life without the use of drugs.

Chi Kung literally means "Breath Exercise." Chi Kung is an ancient Chinese healthcare system that integrates physical postures, breathing techniques, and focused attention. These three attributes make it an excellent complementary practice for anyone recovering from substance abuse and its physical, mental, and spiritual manifestations.
Chi Kung creates an awareness of, and influences dimensions of our being that are not part of traditional exercise programs. Most exercises do not involve the meridian system (used in acupuncture), nor do they emphasize the importance of adding mind intent and breathing techniques to physical movements. When these dimensions are added, the benefits of exercise increase markedly.
The gentle rhythmic movements of Chi Kung reduce stress, build stamina, increase vitality, and enhance the immune system. It has also been found to improve cardiovascular, respiratory, circulatory, lymphatic, and digestive functions.
Consistent practice helps one regain a youthful vitality, maintain health even into old age, and helps speed recovery from illness. One of the more important long-term effects is that Chi Kung reestablishes the body/mind/spirit connection.
Here at Las Vegas Recovery Center, we use the Eight-Section Brocade- Chi Kung exercises to assist clients in their efforts to heal their bodies, calm their minds, and above all, reconnect with their spirits. When these aspects of one's being are integrated, it encourages a positive outlook on life and helps eliminate harmful attitudes and behaviors. It also creates a balanced lifestyle, which brings greater harmony, stability, and enjoyment into one's life.
Chi Kung's great appeal is that everyone can benefit, regardless of ability, age, belief system, or life circumstance.
Chiropractic is a discipline that emphasizes diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disorders of the musculoskeletal system, especially the spine, as these disorders can affect general health via the nervous system. While the short-term goal of Chiropractic care typically is to reduce and eliminate pain, the long-term goal is to correct and remove the cause of one or more deeper issue(s).
The actual goal of Chiropractic Treatment at the Las Vegas Recovery Center is to ensure the body is functioning as effectively and efficiently as possible no matter what the ailment. The benefits of Chiropractic care affect the whole body, because Chiropractic focuses on the entire body, not just the areas that hurt. For long-term results, Chiropractic care can produce mind-body results that are greater than those treatments that simply focus on "where it hurts."
Massage can give a feeling of replenished energy; it is a systematic, manual application of pressure and movement to the soft tissue of the body--the skin, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and fascia (the membrane surrounding muscles and muscle groups). It is believed to encourage healing by promoting the flow of blood and lymphatic fluid, relieving tension, stimulating nerves, and stretching and loosening muscles and connective tissues to keep them elastic. Massage can stimulate or calm the nervous system, depending upon what is required by the individual, and thus help to reduce fatigue, leaving the receiver with a feeling of replenished energy. At its best, massage has the potential to restore an individual physically, mentally, and spiritually.
Reiki is a Japanese energy technique that works to clear and balance the chakras, the aura, and the meridians. The "Rei" means "universally guided" and the "Ki" means "energy."
Reiki is noninvasive, and the client remains fully clothed during a treatment. The Reiki practitioner will lay his or her hands on, or hover with both hands a few inches above, the areas on the body that align with the chakras. Chakras are spinning energy centers in the body that lie along the body's many energetic pathways. The practitioner may also be guided to work other areas of the body where there may be blockages. It is a subtle, yet powerful modality.
While Reiki is spiritual in nature, it is not associated with any particular religion; therefore, it is available to everyone. Reiki can aid in stress reduction and relaxation, which are key components in alleviating chronic pain. Reiki can also ease addiction-based illnesses, anxiety, and depression. It can aid in insomnia relief, increase inner peace and mental clarity, and boost creativity. Las Vegas Recovery Center provides a safe environment for clients' Reiki experience.
Experts believe that yoga can be a valuable tool for treating addiction. This ancient Indian practice provides addicts with an effective method for dismantling compulsive behaviors and triggers, achieving self-confidence, regaining physical health, and learning physical and mental self-control.
The practice of yogic postures (asanas), breathing, and meditation can aid addiction. Yoga can help an individual get a clear sense of self. The basis of the practice is love, oneness, and living in the present moment. The goal of yoga is to create peaceful union among the body, mind, and spirit.
Yoga offers a gentle and peaceful way for recovering addicts to reconnect with their bodies. The positive physical effects of yoga are both immediate and long-term. Yogic stretches, bends, and breathing methods can bring an immediate sense of calm and focus. These simple techniques can provide immense relief from racing or impulsive thoughts, as well as tension, fear, anger, frustration, and anxiety. Longer-term effects of yoga, such as increased bone and muscle strength, increased flexibility and stamina, improved circulation, and better coordination help recovering addicts regain physical health and develop a positive self-image. By learning to honor and respect the body, as well as developing patience and tenacity, recovering addicts may also find that yoga helps them avoid relapses.
Nutritional Consultation at Las Vegas Recovery Center
Appropriate nutrition can help manage weight, increase energy, and maintain a way of life free of substance-dependency.
Nutritional information can often be confusing, making it difficult to know what is the right balance of nutrients to consume in order to feel healthy and energetic and prevent lifestyle diseases. It is well documented that appropriate nutrition can help manage weight, increase energy, prevent vitamin and mineral deficiencies, and maintain a substance-dependency free lifestyle. At Las Vegas Recovery Center, we provide clients with information, offer guidance so that they can make food choices to complement their new found recovery, and tailor nutritional plans to meet their individual needs. The nutritional consultation includes a review of the client's medical history and nutritional history, and development of a menu system specific to each client.
